A Message From KTEP's General Manager

Jul 9, 2021

Let me begin by saying, “thank you” for your support during our last pledge drive.  Due to your generosity, KTEP raised over $50,000.  This is an indication that you not only value public radio, but remained committed to supporting us during one of the most difficult times in our nation’s history.

Our community is slowly coming back to “normal.”  It can be argued that this pandemic has changed our way of life so profoundly that we will never completely go back to the way things were.  As you are aware, KTEP used to have its pledge drives “live” on the air.  Those days seem so far away.  What makes raising $50,000 so impressive is that we reached out to you only through our pre-recorded promos and via mail.  You were there for us the same way we were there for you during the height of the pandemic. 

Finally, you may have noticed that we are now generating local news in the mornings.  Angela Kocherga (KTEP News Director) recently was presented with three regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for her work.  This is part of our on-going commitment to providing you with the highest quality news—nationally, regionally and locally.

Again, thank you for your support!  KTEP remains steadfast in bringing you the best public radio has to offer.

Best Wishes,

John R. Carrillo                                                                                                                                                                 KTEP Interim General Manager
